    The noble porcini is sometimes called the king of the mushroom world. We think it’s because of the unabashed savory and woodsy flavor that seems even stronger in this dried version.

    Additional Information

    Porcini mushrooms (Boletus edulis) are known as cèpes in France, where they are revered for their nutty taste and meaty texture. Stalking the wild porcini is an autumnal occupation, but the season is all too brief. And these mushrooms have never been cultivated, so once the seasonal window closes, it’s time to turn to the pantry.

    Happily, the porcini is well-suited to drying, and its flavor actually intensifies. It seems that the aromatic, woodsy and earthy flavor concentrates into the meaty stem and cap when dried. These are mushrooms with attitude. Don't get caught without a jar in the cupboard.

    We follow wild mushrooms around the world and forage for the finest quality in the woods, fields and mountains where they grow. While they are available, we sell most of them fresh, but also preserve some of nature’s bounty. Dried naturally and carefully packed in France, our mushrooms offer the flavor of the forest year-round.

    We think that a pantry is not complete without a few jars of dried mushrooms, ready for when inspiration strikes.

    Dried porcini can be easily reconstituted in hot--not boiling--water or another liquid such as chicken stock or liquor.

    Save the liquid as it will have essence of porcini in it, and can be used to flavor soups or sauces. This intense, earthy mushroom gives its all to soups, risotto and game stews.

    Add depth to creamy chestnut soup, or make a traditional, slow-cooked Italian ragout and add chopped, dried porcini to the aromatics.Try stewing a whole cut-up chicken or thick-cut Berkshire pork chops in a creamy sauce with a mix of mushrooms, including dried porcini.
